NEW PROGRAM ANNOUNCEMENT!
A few weeks ago, Julie asked her Cancer Dietitian audience to assist in crafting a fun name for a new virtual program that she and our nutrition intern, Carolyn, have been working on.
We are excited to announce that the name will be EAT THE RAINBOW! Fruit & Veggie Challenge. A 12-week challenge focused on what you CAN eat instead of what you can’t.
Join us on Monday, June 22nd for an info session where we give you all the details including when the program will start!
It’s going to be fun, and delicious 12 week program and you won’t want to miss out! But don’t worry … if you can’t make it Monday, we will have it recorded and available to watch later.
COOK TO THRIVE! Survivorship Cooking Class Recording
If you missed our cooking class from this week, don’t worry… it’s recorded and available for viewing! We had a great time and the recipes are delicious. Check it out!
